I have been fighting Fibromyalgia headaches most of the week but I did finish two books and started a few crochet things this week. I have a ton of cotton yarn so there will be some placemats coming over the next few weeks from that stash. I have also decided to do some more wrist warmers/boot cuffs in a variety of colors and maybe post those on my Etsy page. I have not put up new stuff for quite some time there and I need to do that more often.
I have some food posts in the wings for you guys… I just need a clear brain to edit and get those up. I am also hoping for some good days this week to do some canning. I have just been wiped out with the headaches. I think the weather changes and heat have brought a great deal of the pain on. I am ready for some settled cooler weather.
These are two things I did this week. The round one is a small placemat. I really love the look of that but I have had to use a larger hook size than the pattern recommends so that it is larger. I think I could still go up a size for the next one. The pattern called for a G hook but I used an H hook. I think an I hook will be the right size. I found the pattern here but it is no longer available from the designer. I am glad I saved it to my computer when it was available.
I finished up two books and started a new one this week… I am currently at 31 books for the year out of my 40 book goal.
I did a review on this one here.
The Basic Christianity book has been a study book we have done with a group at church over the last few months. I finished it up this week. This was the second time I have read this one and it was just as fantastic the second time around. If you want to know more about Christianity I highly recommend this book.
I just started this one. I read Gabhart’s mystery series and loved her writing and storytelling so this was a must pick for me. I will keep you posted on what I think when I get to the end.
With the coming of Autumn 2017 I felt it was time to break out the Pumpkin Praline coffee. I grew up on Community Coffee. It is an authentic Louisiana style family owned company. You can special order it and have it shipped directly to your front door. They have a coffee club program that offers discounts if you set a regular order for every 30/60/90 days. I have a standing order and I love it. I can go in and add or change something before next shipment and it works beautifully for us.
